When I started coaching in 2014 I was on a mission to train people to move well. I trained everyone like the textbooks said: knees out, chest up, butt back, spread the floor.
My clients got fitter working with me, but I later came to realize that I was pigeon holing them further into one single position rather than having them train in a variety of shapes & positions that would improve mobility in the areas they lacked it.
7 years later most of the fitness industry still hasn’t come to that realization, so I’m on a mission to raise the standard of how exercises are coached, programmed and progressed to get people the best results possible.
You can say I took a deep dive into gait and respiratory mechanics, and it’s how I’ve come to LOVEEE working with runners!
Strength training is now one of many tools I use to facilitate running performance, improve posture, and restore lost range of motion throughout the body.
My lens for assessing, coaching, and programming movement has since evolved and continues to adapt with my ongoing education, and it's my application of these principles to strength and conditioning that sets me apart from other coaches in the industry who can't get their clients the same results.
